Synopsis from Goodreads

Episode 8:

With the life she carefully constructed in Austin now in shambles, Vanora returns home to Houston with the intention of saving her brother from the unseen forces gathering against him. The journey home is perilous, but Armando is at her side, protecting her against all harm. Yet, the vampire may not be able to protect her from the darkness about to consume everyone she loves, and she can't trust her own heart that yearns for him.

Serial Synopsis:

In Darkness We Must Abide is the epic saga of one young woman caught in the dangerous world of the creatures of the night.

Already living in the shadows due to her albinism, Vanora is just a little girl when her older brother inadvertently unleashes a terrible evil from the family crypt that changes their lives forever.

As she grows up in a world where beautiful deadly beings hunt by night, one captures her eye and her heart. Yet, can she trust the mysterious Armando? For there is a powerful entity plotting to claim her when she reaches adulthood in order to fulfill an ancient prophecy, and her enemy has enveloped her in a web of deceit, casting doubt on all she believes to be true. Soon, she will have to fight not only to save those she loves, but also for her very soul.

Rhiannon Frater delivers a chilling adventure once again with this multi-part epic serial with a dynamic cast, old school vampires, bloody action, a smoldering forbidden love, and a terrifying villain set against the backdrop of a modern day vampire war.


     Oh Rhiannon, how you love to torture us! Man, what a great addition to this amazing series. We follow Vanora while she is running away after what happened to her friend. She is now going back to visit her older siblings, Roman and Alisha. Unfortunately it is not going to be a friendly visit. Vanora had a vision that something bad will happen to Roman and it is up to her and Armando to convince him before it is too late.

     This serial really started off with a bang. Armando is trying his best to save Vanora. Aeron is after her and some of his ex-minions are after her while she is on the road. Armando still loves Vanora even though she is clearly frightened of him. Vanora hates that she has feelings for Armando still after all that has happened. But she knows that she can't resist him. I love that Frater has given us more of Armando and that we see things from his side as well as Vanora. I loved that we got to see the connection again between Vanora and her siblings. They have such a strong bond still and it was nice seeing them reunite. I was even surprised with Carlotta who Roman is now engaged to. I didn't like her before, but it actually seems like she really does love him. It was really nice.

     I won't give anything anyway, but the next serial is sure to be insane. I am both excited and scared. It is going to be epic. Vanora is really coming into her own and I love seeing her grow with each serial. I can't wait to see what Frater will do with her next. Frater never disappoints, but I was betting on tears this time around. I think she is out to torture us. That is the only explanation. Another great serial, book 9 can't get here fast enough.
